Alberto Del Rio Leaving WWE Soon?

Posted by Matt Boone February 5, 2014 18 Comments

According to a new PWInsider.com report, there was talk backstage at Monday’s WWE RAW that Alberto Del Rio has been making noise about potentially leaving the company when his current WWE contract expires.

Apparently Del Rio has been frustrated after going from being a top guy on the SmackDown brand to what he considers to be someone simply being fed to Batista. A lot of the talk in the company is that due to Del Rio’s age, him talking about retirement in the past and the fact that he has had a considerable amount of success and notiriety in Mexico, that maybe it’s getting close to the time that he eventually walks away.

There is no definitive word at this point as to whether or not Del Rio has started working on a new contract, but there is at least a certain amount of concern over his future after the talk at RAW this past Monday night.

      in my opinion del rio is just boring to watch it might be his character but what other character can they give him really to make him more entertaining

        true, he’s just bad at doing promos, he’s boring in the ring.
        i also wonder why they ditched his entrance riding in cars.
        he has become even boring when Ricardo left him.

    • CM Punk

      No one will care when you leave lol.

      I think Del Rio is a good wrestler. I think his character is what made him boring. This will never happen, but it would nice if WWE would just let the wrestlers wrestle & let that be the entertainment. Instead of being so character driven b/c the lame characters have been the downfall of alot of talent lately. Sounds like several people have an issue w/ Batista being handed to him. Can’t say I blame them.

    • Bulkster

      They need to team him and Ricardo back up for one last run then.

    • FightFan

      Don’t blame him. They had him friggin job to Ricardo Rodriguez when he WAS STILL champion.

    • P.P. Johnny

      P.P. Johnny says Del Rio hasn’t been relevant since he ran over Santa Claus on the 2012 Christmas show.

      Another one bites the dust…that should be the RAW theme song.

      I’ve always liked Del Rio. He’s a fantastic wrestler – and when he debuted, he was entertaining as hell. Unfortunately, he’s become the victim of WWE’s lousy booking in recent years. I wish Vince would just let the man be himself, because he actually has a tonne of personality (as shown by his Twitter account). Also, I loved how he tried to beat the piss out of Sin Cara after that ‘broken finger’ incident.

      lmao del rio thinks that being a big name on smackdown is the same as a main event guy on raw a main event on smackdown is like lower mid card/opening match/dark match on raw

    • Rog

      The character is pretty much boring but the wrestler is very good. WWE is burning out their full time wrestlers to benefit par time massive egos!! As this continues WWE will lose great talent that they never gave chance to!!!

      they dropped the ball on del rio, the guy is beyond loaded down in mexico, he has an MMA and amateur wrestling background, and they put him behind guys like cena and orton, id like to see him and batista actually go at it in the ring

      • Brushner

        del rio would win… legitimate shootfighter. he even broke a dude’s arm with a belly to belly suplex in MMA. His embarrassing loss only came cause he wore a mask that restricted his vision and he was blindsided by a kick…

    • VintageFan

      don’t really care if he leaves or not. he has become a very revengeful person that
      I don’t enjoy watching anymore. always knew his character would be changed

    • ariel

      i think del rio is actually pretty decent at being a heel

      wwe is just not using him like always
